Tom Brady might have his niece to thank if he someday goes down as the second-most gifted athlete in the family.
Maya Brady, whose mother is Maureen Brady, the oldest of three Brady sisters, is a star redshirt freshman on the UCLA softball team. She launched her first home run Sunday in the No. 2 Bruins’ 14-0 victory over San Jose State.
Tom Brady, a month removed from winning his seventh Super Bowl championship, used Twitter to show some love for his niece.
Take a look:
“Maya Brady, the most dominant athlete in the Brady family … by far!”
By the way, this is far from the first time Brady has boasted about his niece.
Check out this quote from a 2019 story in The Boston Globe:
?I think Maya is already the most athletic person of the family. She?s just a great athlete, so competitive. And she?s been on such winning teams and she?s such a great teammate. It?s so impressive.?
In case you needed further evidence of just how athletically gifted the Brady family is, consider this:
— Maureen was an All-American softball pitcher with Fresno State.
— Julie Brady, the second of the three Brady sisters, starred in soccer as a child and is married to longtime Boston Red Sox star Kevin Youkilis.
— Nancy Brady was a star softball player at Cal.
